Buescher wins Trucks race at Chicagoland
JOLIET, Ill. (AP) -- James Buescher took the lead from Timothy Peters on the last lap, then held off a charge from Brendan Gaughan to win the NASCAR Truck Series race at Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday night.
It was Buescher's third career win, with all three coming this season. Buescher previously won at Kansas and Kentucky.
Gaughan finished second after dominating the majority of the race. Peters was third, followed by Matt Crafton and Parker Kligerman.
It was the 200th career start in Trucks for Todd Bodine, making him the only driver with at least 200 starts in all three of NASCAR's national series.
Bodine finished 18th.
